Stylish with a classic presentation, the Tissot Men's T-Sport PRC200 Chronograph Stainless Steel Blue Dial Watch should definitely be invited into your watch collection. It begins with a 40mm stainless steel case with prominent pushers and crown on the right side. These elements surround a navy blue dial with white second markers and index hour markers, along with white Arabic numerals at the 3, 9, and 12 'o clock positions. The dial, which is protected by a scratch-resistant sapphire crystal, also offers three blue chronographs sub-dials and a tachymeter scale on the outer rim of the dial. A classic stainless steel five-link bracelet straps this watch to the wrist, while a fold-over clasp with a double push-button safety ensures that it stays there. Finally, this watch offers water resistance up to 660 feet (200 meters) and features a date display window at the 4 'o clock position.

I received it as a gift for Christmas 2012. It keeps perfect time and really does hold up well to punishment. I've bumped and banged it on a few items and despite my immediate cringe after each time, I look and the sapphire crystal is completely flawless. The stainless steel is also of excellent quality though it has developed slight indentations from the abuse - it is completely unnoticeable unless you look very closely. The only other wear is around the clasp of the watch where my hands rest on a table. It has significant intangible scuffs throughout and on the nearby band. I consider it to be normal for a watch like this and I'm confident that when it comes time to replace the battery, having it cleaned & buffed will remove some to most of these scuffs.
As a tip for those with small wrists, this watch is surprisingly comfortable. I used to wear Skagen watches because I felt they were the only brand that was comfortable and didn't look ridiculous on me. This watch has multiple adjustment levels and not only fits well, but I've never had it pinch me once.
One very small annoyance is that the hands do not perfectly line up to the watch face. For example the large second hand is not perfectly centered above the 12 hours mark. Same with the smaller counting second hand. I viewed another watch in the store and it lined up perfectly, so my particular model must simply be faulty. Again, as a gift I wasn't bothered enough to replace it - the local Tissot authorized dealer verified that it appears genuine and may simply be a production variation.
I can see enjoying this watch for at least another 4 or more years. I would probably purchase another with a new design by then and switch them out. Although this watch costs more than I would normally want to pay, it's a worthy investment given that it is so solidly built. Prior to this Tissot, I went through Skagen watches valued total ~$150 in two years as they tend to wear out or break relatively quickly (the bumps and bangs to those watches usually ended up with serious damage). Cheap isn't necessarily a better value unless you compare this to a $5 Casio.
Update: I have had this watch for 2 1/2 years now. My band, clasp, and bezel are all scratched up. I knew this would happen because it is my only watch, and I wear it all the time, regardless of what I'm working on or doing. Tissot's sapphire crystal still doesn't have a scratch, and the watch is functioning perfectly, keeping excellent time. I have not had to replace the battery yet. I am still very pleased with this watch.
My box definitely looks older but is still in great shape. There was some documentation in the box with dates from 2010 and 2009 on it so it is most likely just a leftover older model. The watch itself seems to work and look great. Nothing wrong with it and not a scratch on it. One of the reasons why I don't think it is a fake watch is it seems as though if it were fake some corners would have been cut in producing the clasp and band and they are very high quality and durable on this watch.
Also, one of the reviewers said that the heads of all of the side buttons were painted blue and that fakes have this. Had this person examined closer, it was blue plastic covering those buttons so they do not get scratched. All you have to do is peel them off.
One thing I did notice though is that this watch is offered by many different sellers on Amazon, but only by one seller at a time. When I ordered my watch, I ordered it from Watch Outlet Germany for $289. Only a week or so later after I received the watch, it is now offered by Time and Beyond for $343.79.
All in all, I am very happy with the watch so far. I saved quite a bit of money getting an older model. The only thing I worry about is if it has been sitting around for a few years that the battery may go soon. I'm hoping they put new batteries in before they send them out.
